Administrative/Biographical History Element

A collaborative project carried out by the Pine Hills Culture Program of the University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Oral History and Cultural Heritage, the Mississippi Arts Commission, the Louisiana Division of the Arts, and the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the Piney Woods Folklife Survey was intended to break ground on cooperation between state folklife initiatives by building on existing documentation of the areas in each of the three states.

More information about the Piney Woods Survey is available on the Louisiana Folklife Program website.
